Can My Parents Speak with My TEFL Advisor about Teaching English Abroad?


Yes. We speak to parents and family members of  TEFL students all the time, and your advisor would be happy to answer any questions or concerns they might have regarding the TEFL certification process, English teaching jobs abroad, and general issues relating to living abroad like health insurance and security. Going to live in another country to teach English abroad is a big decision, and including your family members in the decision making process and receiving their support can be very helpful and important.

We are often asked by students how to approach their parents and to get on board with your interest of seeing the world by teaching abroad.
